Nickelback, the world’s most beloved rock band, is finally taking center stage at Colorado’s most beloved music venue. Check out the lead single from the album below. For more on Nickelback, check out its website, which you should already have bookmarked, but here you go.

Photos by Seth McConnell, They stood proudly beside the likes of Ludacris, Cypress Hill, Galactic, Our Lady Peace, Lil John & the East Side Boyz and Molotov to support that evening’s headliner, none other than Kid Rock himself. Mark your calendar: Nickelback, who are basically the Chainsmokers of classic rock, will play Red Rocks on Sept. That’s right. Nickelback is offering up VIP packages for each show, with options like “specially designed” Nickelback messenger bags, a “limited edition guitar pick set in wood casing,” and “parking.” No word on pricing, but does it really matter? But wait: There’s more. The Paleozaic era (290-296 years ago): Red Rocks’ natural amphitheater begins to form. 6 at 10 a.m. 2017: Nickelback headlines Red Rocks for the first time in history.

Nickelback purists will remember that while this is the first time the band will have headlined Red Rocks, they have played the venue before as a part of 2004’s Coor’s Light Mountain Jam. Nickelback, the band literally named after change leftover from a coffee order at Starbucks, will play Red Rocks as a part of a new 44-city tour in support of its ninth studio album, “Feed the Machine.” (No word on what kind of coffee the machine in question dispenses.) It’s out June 9. via Nickelback at the Pepsi Center on June 10, 2012.
